So Long Lux 

Lux Interior 1946-2009

Lux Interior passed away this morning at Glendale memorial hospital here in the San Fernando valley, so I'll definitely be spinning some Cramps today.

A comment from Fried Wire on Lux's passing got me thinking about all my punk heroes who are turning fifty or passing away and making me feel, in turn, quite old! Granted I am the youngest of the group here, but with guys like Casey Royer and Rikk Agnew turning fifty recently, I can't help but notice the 'snow on my own roof' and feel a little depressed.

R.I.P. - Lux, thanks for the memories!
